WALKING TOUR JEWISH ANTWERP

DISCOVER FASCINATING FACTS ABOUT THE JEWISH COMMUNITY IN ANTWERP

Our guide will take you on a discovery tour through the neighbourhood surrounding the central station. While walking through the diamond district and the small streets of the Jewish quarter, the guide will tell you more about the Antwerp Jews. First, you’ll learn how Jewish community Antwerp came into being. Then you’ll learn about the typical customs of the Jewish tradition, such as kosher food, Sabbath and the mezuzah by the door.
